Nike Air Foamposite – 2012 Preview
The most recently unveiled pair of Nike Air Foamposite Ones came with a ‘What the Foam’ nickname attached to its tie-dyed upper, and judging from the feedback we saw in the comments, ‘WTF’ was an appropriate descriptor. Some have called them the ‘Galaxy All-Star’ Foamposite One, and no matter the name, they’re guaranteed to headline next year’s Nike Sportswear Foamposite lineup. Then again, maybe it’ll be one of the more traditionally-colored editions that catches your eye, like the neon Ones, or maybe you’ll want the silver Pros with red and black trim? Click through to see new NSW Product Cration Lead for Basketball and Football, Gentry Humphrey wearing the Galaxy Foams and showing off several others, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all the 2012 Nike Air Foamposite release dates. via Justin Amazing//Shoepreme
NYC BEEN ROCKING FOAMS SINCE THE ORIGNALS CAME OUT YA NEW N***** JUST GETTING ON FOAMS AND MAKING THEM LOOK VERY CORNY
People act like its a sin to like foams or pay 220 and better for em....actually I'm ne of those that didn't like em back then but now the new colors is mean and I'm buying the ones I LIKE. 220 is a lot but compared to what women spend on designer bags and shoes 500+. ,, it don't seem to bad after all. Every color is not 4 everybody..but they are truly collector items....I pay 300 + each for all 4 of mines.
Im from NYC I've been rocking Foam since 1998. For my New Yorkers they been rocking the foams since 97, 98. U hypebeast are ridiculous smh do your history. Dmv and wale is trash lyrically and u guys period is funny. Ridiculous colorways are gay. Keep it simple, original and bring back the quality back. New quality sucks and the new foams will never be the. Same as the OG's bring back the blk bottom as well.
The metallic red foams and the gold foams are the two that are a must cop to me. I agree that foams have been overdone now. Wow they are like expensive air force ones. Lol
im from dc and i dnt wear foams any more. after the 09 eggplants. i was done...nike is ruining the shoe, and gentry ruins my life!!! lls
only chance id buy foams at this point is if coppers re release. seems like most people where I'm from are phasing out jordans for foams these days
The WTF, Universal whatever theyre called...are prob my least fav foam of all time , seriously dont get the appeal .....BUT those Golden States DOPE!!!
Wish I was @ the unveiling function to see'em all up close. Penny runs shit still, even after basketball.
just my opinion but these colorways look like they were just thrown together. the mettalic red foams for christmas is where its at!!
Metallic reds, volts, chameleons then galaxies. Galaxies gotta grow on me a lil more but they're all pretty nice. And yes, Nike is ODing on the foams. Throw a few flight posites in somewhere.
I'm done with foams, too many drops in such a short time span. This was a sneaker which was known for its crazy design and how rare it was. It's now become another common sneaker like dunks and blazers with people just buying them to be like everyone else. Majority don't know shit about the sneaker or truly appreciate it.
The only problem is that they are expensive. If you can see in the upcoming weeks it seems that every Nike product has gone up in prices.
2012 is going down as one of the greatest years in sneakers history! Not just because of the Foams. It's so much heat coming out next year, its ridiculous. Can't wait!!
The "wtf" look pretty clean in these pics.... but these young hypebeast already killed the image of the foamposite so all easy pass for me my friend
You crazy to pay that much son! resale on foams are crazy. I dont get every foam that drops. Just the colorways I like! Its a hot shoe that last for a long ass time, so why not spend the money. Only broke ppl say they dont like them. Love Foams!!!!!!!!
Super co-sign! We been rocking the foamposites in the NYC. Back then they were the intelligent gangster shoe. All black and real clean. Most people didn't know what they were. These new colorways bring too much attention to them and most are definitely playing them out. I still wear them because they BEEN my signature shoe. I just wish they would bring them back in all Black
Happy gentry left jordan only to figure out he gonna go and kill my favorite sneaker of all time fuck him as nd these gayass fruity colorways
I feel you on that one i remember when i started wearing foams about 8 years ago peoole called them ugly and now some of those same people are all over them and some of these colorways are so fucking ugly and ovet hyped
That's given...just by knowing who's unveiling should be enough for us to know that Nike Brand will be messed up. Just look what he did the JB. I guess the foams are the first to get murdered in his lists.
